Promoting Excellence and Equity in Women’s Health.

The South African Society of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, was formed in 1946. From the onset the aim was to form an uniting body for gynaecologists. Initially and for many years the main objectives were to organise congresses and meetings, to negotiate for a proper fee structure and to make comments on obstetrical and gynaecological training in South Africa.
